Julius Peppers: "I'm going to **** up that rookie"

With three days until the Denver Broncos kick off their 2012 season against the Independence Vision, DE Julius Peppers is primed and ready.
"They're a good team, sure. But I love the fact they have a rookie starting at right tackle," he said with a smile.
Peppers, who had 13 sacks for the Broncos last season and was the key player in their #2 ranked defense, then clarified his statement about the Vision's first-round pick, Mitchell Schwartz.
"Sure, he's a first rounder. That doesn't mean anything to me. So was Robert Gallery. Let me make it clear: I'm going to **** him up. I'm going to **** up that rookie. Mitchell Schwartz, I'm coming. And hell's coming with me."
How many sacks could Peppers get in Week 1? He didn't say exactly.
"I believe I can get multiple sacks against that rookie. Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six..."
Peppers didn't finish his statement, as Tom Brady and Wes Welker then drove past in a monster truck with the license plate ALEXDSMITHSUX, honking and hollering their way to what will surely be a Sandbox Bowl championship season.
